Hatcher, Carr happy Jason Garrett will be back - Todd Archer, ESPN Dallas
Brandon Carr is surprised Garrett was even considered to be anywhere close to being on a hot seat, and Jason Hatcher stresses the personal side of Jason Garrett.
"Just to know him personally and know that he cares about you off the field as well as on the field, it’s not like some coaches who absolutely don’t care about you," defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said. "It’s all business with them. But you know at the end of the day that he cares about you individually and he understands the game. He’s a great coach. I know you guys think differently. Y’all rag him all the time, but I think he’s an awesome coach and I wish the best for him in the future and I’m glad the Cowboys will have him back. He deserves it."

"You know, whatever that gets them motivated, all I know is Sunday, I’m going to play my game," he said. "We, us – as a team, as well – are coming out playing our game." "They can say whatever they want to say. That’s what they believe, we’ll let them believe that. We’re going to out, and we’re going to play our game."

Jones: We need more from Romo - Tom Orsborn, Express-News
Jones said the Cowboys will need more from Tony Romo over the final six games if they're going to make a playoff push.
"There’s an old adage that once you’ve seen players do it then you know they can do it," Jones told reporters in Irving. "Will they do it again? Or can they do it again? Or how often do they do it again? That’s the question. But they can do it. And Tony can do what we want him to do. And do what it takes to win this ballgame. That’s where I am. I am not concerned. As a matter of fact, we’re going into the game, Tony’s one of, if not the strength, one of the most important strengths of our entire team."

Callahan says he's proud of how offense has taken care of the ball - Carlos Mendez, Star-Telegram
The Cowboys are tied with the Colts for the second-fewest giveaways in the NFL, having tuned over the ball just 11 times. OC Bill Callahan said the low number of turnovers does not mean Romo is being overprotective.
"He’ll throw some balls in some tight quarters, and he’ll take some risks," Callahan said. "He’s not overly liberal with the ball, throwing it all over the place. So he’s really smart in his decision-making. And again, that goes back to the turnover ratio. If we’re not turning the ball over, you’re going to give yourself a chance to be in every game, and that’s all we want. Let’s protect the ball. Let’s do a great job with ball security, let’s make smart decisions."
